Victoria Jardine


Partner in the governance, funding and corporate team

My role

I am a member of the team that delivers corporate, governance, regulatory and charity law advice to housing associations, charities and not-for-profit businesses. I work particularly closely with boards and executive teams on their strategy and direction. I also deliver major projects such as stock transfers, group structures and mergers, corporate and funding structuring for business growth, governance reviews, joint ventures and collaborations between organisations.

My experience

I spent the first years of my career as a corporate lawyer specialising in private equity. Since joining Anthony Collins Solicitors in 2004, I’ve used my corporate and commercial expertise and experience to support our housing and third sector clients across a wide range of projects including strategy and direction, governance reviews, stock transfers, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions and group structures.
